Motto: “Planting Seeds to Help You Grow”

Services We Offer:

Relaxation Room/Mind Spa/Training

Relaxation is an important part of self-care. Even though it is a common concept, very few of us have had much experience with real relaxation. Our definition of real relaxation is different than exercising, zoning out, socializing, or pursuing a distraction like TV or a book. Those things are important, but they are not truly relaxation. Real relaxation is an intentional, focused period of time during which one is mindful and alert, yet one's muscles are relaxed. This is not necessarily as easy as it might sound, but when you have mastered this skill, it can help restore energy and boost your mood and performance levels much better than those other activities.

The Serenity Room

Drop by and check out our soothing Serenity Room which is designed to help individuals develop relaxation skills, cope with stress, and practice “mindful” meditation.
